Papertrue! True! True! True!
My experience with papertrue.com was great. I came across their site from the high ratings. And the high ratings proved to be true. Once I got onto their site, I was immediately helped by a papertrue.com Rep, a live person, who helped answer my questions and walked me through the process. That was a big plus! And as a first timer, I got a discount or free edit. That was another plus! And the transaction was quick and easy. The turnaround time was also fast, delivery was on schedule and on time as specified. Another plus! My editor was also great and very helpful with comments, notes and suggestions. And when my document was completed and I had to ask a question to my editor, the Customer Service Rep was quick to respond. They escalated the matter so that my question would reach my editor and my editor would give me a reply directly and quickly. And my editor did just that. That was a major plus! Overall, thumbs up on great Customer Service and Editorial service. I would recommend them and look forward to working with them again. Thank you papertrue.com!
More than I had hoped for!
Did two jobs with PaperTrue and I'm highly satisfied. In one of the jobs I had some questions regarding their proposed changes and they immediately dug into it and explained why they had chosen certain expressions instead of others and what the differences were. That's really more than I had hoped for! And their chat-people are very alert - and good fun, too!
Very trustworthy and extremely efficient
I had an academic document proofread by the papertrue team. They not only corrected numerous grammar and spelling issues, they also advised on certain expressions according to my target audience. And the best, they did so over night... extremely fast, extremely good, and trustworthy service. Will be coming here again for the next publication.
Even my tutor can not find these errors
Thank you for editing my document on time. The editor pointed my attention to my commonly made mistakes; missing words, incorrect spelling and grammatical inconsistencies throughout the document.
I was happy to receive both a tracked and a clean version of the edited document.
I will happily recommend PaperTrue to my friends, and I will myself come back on a later occasion.
Excellent Service, Highly Recommended
I have used PaperTrue for several editing projects for my website. They have edited small and large projects for me. PaperTrue offers great pricing with no hidden fees, they always deliver on time and I love the fact that they provide a clean version and a corrected version showing the recommend changes. I highly recommend this company for anyone looking for quality editing services. They have great communications, project completion dates are given when ordered and they have consistently met the deadline. I am extremely satisfied and I will remain a loyal customer.
Great service, great company!
We are a Spanish advertising agency that work for international companies. Usually we need our copies to be reviewed. We trust Papertrue for doing this, they are always super-professional and always deliver the documents on time. I recommend them 100%
Improvement in structure, language and formatting
My cover letter was corrected very professionally, with very detailed comments and explanation. Smaller issues like my unclear description were changed shortly in a revision version, with a very smooth communication. I have learned also from the formating. For further CVs I will still consider their service, because the cover letter has to be formulated for specific job description. I don't do massive job application.
Quick 24 hour turnaround
Paper True was quick and effective. I needed a 24 hr turnaround and they provided me edits to my resume that became the talk of the town among my team. Everyone loved how thorough the edits were. Thank you Paper True for helping me so quickly and effectively.
Aaron is the best editor!
I live in Zürich and needed to have my cooking book "The Food Is Ready" , edited in english before I publish it. So I decided to sent the manuscript to Paper True and I can only tell that I was really impress when I saw the work they did. Aaron my Editor has correct the language and grammar errors. He has done a terrific work improving phrasing and consistency of my book. If you are looking for a serious company I can really recommend Paper True. And "they are allways there available if you have any questions"
An amazing job!
As a sixteen years old Danish girl I must admit finding the right editor was hard, but I found THE one ;)
Amazing service and a welcoming chat on the website! I love the detailed comments and feedback on the tracked document :) They really did a good job at making my debut novel a lot better while still keeping my style of writing!
Much love from Denmark <3

        How to Write a Lab Report

        • calenderOct 08, 2019
        • calender 5 min read

        The experiment that you do in a science lab might get over in a flash but the lab report will take ages to make. That is unless you don’t know how to go about it. Laboratory reports can be confusing; the format, what to add, what not to add, the questions are endless. 

         

        We’ve been through it too and we want to make sure that you don’t spend endless hours just poring over this. Let’s take a look at how to write a lab report and what exactly should you expect. 

        What is a Lab Report?

        A laboratory report is a document written to describe and analyse an experiment that is of a scientific enquiry. A lab report helps you to conduct an experiment and then systematically design a conclusion based on your hypothesis. 

        The outline of a typical lab report goes like this:

        • Abstract: 50-150 words, summarise the objective of the experiment.
        • Equipment: names and numbers of the equipment used
        • Procedures: Steps followed during the experiment
        • Results
        • Conclusion: Justification or negation of your hypothesis based on results.

        Most common mistakes in lab reports

        Since it is a lab report format is very technical, there tend to be inaccuracies in it. The fact that it can get tedious sometimes also does not help. Some common mistakes in a lab report are:

        • To be or not to be?

        Just going around in circles will be the death of your report, much like the death of Hamlet. Indefinite objectives and unclear motives are a big no-no if you want to write a lab report. The resulting document will be a mess, a muddled discussion of ideas that you yourself are not sure of.

        • How much is too much?

        Unnecessary details and excessive elaborating does not make your report sound smart. The why and what of the experiment can be summarized and explained in two lines. It will be difficult to process and the original focus of your lab report will be lost within the other details that you don’t need.

        • Grammar, Syntax and Punctuation errors

        The big picture should have impeccable details. Even if the material and content is correct, not paying attention to the smaller details like the grammar can make your report sloppy and hasty. Some common grammar errors are using contractions, using personal pronouns like I and me, using adjectives excessively etc.  To know more about punctuation and grammar, check out our blog.

        • Overlooking minor details

        Since a laboratory report is different from a normal report, there are certain technicalities that we need to keep in mind. But it is very common to make small mistakes which could prove detrimental later. Some of these are: not putting a space between the number and the unit, absence of labels for the equipment and chemicals (if you have used any) and an interchanging of the mathematical symbols.

        How to write a lab report

        Laboratory reports are not just another passive demonstration of your grades, they are empirical proofs on whether you have understood the topic or not. This is why there are a few guidelines that are important if you want to churn out a good lab report.

        • Pre-Pare

        Devote a good chunk of your time to planning how you want your science lab report to turn out. This includes the objective of your report and what exactly do you want the outcome of it to be. This helps to streamline the entire process and helps you work according to that. Call it a measuring device if you will; steering you on the track and not letting your work diverge from the goal.

        • Record, Record, Record

        If you think that you have a sharp memory and don’t need notes, think again. Everything that goes on in the lab needs to be written down, however insignificant it may be. This way, when something is amiss in your report, you can always refer to what you have recorded and find out. Recording data is a good way to retrace your steps and keep a clean check of the experiment through and through.

        • It’s the little things

         

        The small details in your lab report format matter very much in contributing to how it looks like a whole. A primary focus on the details help you to understand the topic better. A few of these details are:

        – Write the scientific name of the plants or micro-organisms in italics, since they are in Greek or Latin. For example: “Mangifera indica”, commonly known as Mango.

        –  Avoid redundancies. Repeating terms is only good for parrots and not for a lab report.

        – The long life of your report is very likely to be cut in half with overtly long and complicated sentences.

        – Make a flowchart of your science report format, so that it is easier for readers to keep track.

        • Grammar Hammer

        The most intelligent of topics can go completely to waste if they are written badly or sloppily. Grammatical mistakes are very easy to overlook in the rush of making a perfect report. Some grammar pointers for you are:

        1. Refrain from using two voices in your science lab report format. Use either an active voice or passive voice. If you use passive voice, your sentences will be much longer. That is why we would suggest that you use the active voice since it is more concise and to the point.
        2. Watch your use of informal words or phrases like “as I was saying earlier”, “even if”, “whether” etc.
        3. Do not begin paragraphs with an unrelated sentence. For example, for explaining the conclusion of a biology lab report, don’t start it with sentences like “As confusing as it is, biology is still interesting”. The paragraph does not become about biology by using this phrase, it just makes it awkward and trying too hard.

        To help you guys out, we’ve collected a few samples of the format, material and writing style of how an ideal science/lab report should look like.
